Event Overview


WAVE 1: 11:30 AM
WAVE 2: 2:30 PM

Bouldering is the simplest style of climbing. Without the encumbrance of a rope, the climber is free to practice the sport at its highest level. The object is to complete boulder problems, which requires a serious blend of gymnastic ability and grip strength. With up to 40 graded problems to choose from, competitors are scored by their best 4 ascents.
